Looking for brown business casual shoes to wear with khakis and a dress shirt but having trouble finding shoes that fit. I have a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots in regular width (9.5 D) that fit great. Tried Allen Edmonds on the 1-last (10 D) and Aldens on the barrie last (10 D) and both were too narrow. One of my feet is wide near my pinky toe and it ends up getting smashed. Tried a wider paid of the Allen Edmonds and they just slipped off my foot. Can anyone recommend something to try next? Would stretching the previous shoes be an option? Budget is up to $500. Would also like a heel that doesn't click or make a bunch of noise if possible but not required, I like the heel on the Wolverines, so maybe a commando sole or rubber. Thank you

you can try one of the allen edmonds on their 5 last and get a E or EE. I wear a 7D in the 1000 mile (slightly long on my foot) and a 7E in the 5 lasts (park aves, strands, fifth aves)

hi there, the velcro on the lower part of my raf simons hightop is distitching. do you guys know if theres repair?

post #12382 of 16170

Hey, I've been trying to 'improve' my style for a wee while now, I'm not sure if I'm doing it right at all and wondered if I could get some quick advice from these photos. I work in a really casual environment with no need to dress up but I'd still love the oportunity to wear shirts and ties, or smarter items instead of the super-casual jeans + T-shirts so I was looking for a decent smart/casual mix so I dont become too uncomfortable, can still do my job (Which involves a fair bit of outdoor working) and look and feel good at the same time.

 

Thanks

Dress for your job. There's nothing wrong with a t shirt and jeans; just keep the t shirts plain and neutral and the jeans dark and non-distressed. What you're doing right now just looks affected.

Hey guys,

 

I'm looking for a new pair of jeans and wanted to stop by to see what you guys think. I'm looking for some washed jeans with no distressing. I'm trying to find a wash similar to this:

I realize that these are raw denim but don't quite have the funds to drop that much yet. My budget is $50-75 dollars. I'd be willing to spend a bit more if you guys think it's worth it though. I'm 6'1" and ~160 pounds. I would like the fit to be similar to the one in the picture. Maybe slightly baggier, not much though. I'm currently a 32x34 in 511's. They fit me okay. I have 2 pairs, one is a little bit tight in the thigh. The other is a wee bit baggy. I was planning on checking out the 501's, 508's, 513's, and the 514's. I'll probably try some 511's on again as well. I'm open to try other brands as well as long as they meet all the criteria. To be honest, I just don't really know what else is out there, I've always had Levi's. I've heard H&M has some nice, affordable ones that might be worth a look. So...what do you guys recommend?

 

Also, unrelated but do you guys know what kind of shoes the model is wearing in the picture that I posted?

 

Thanks!

Soooo I tried an American Apparel t-shirt yesterday and found the fit was generally okay, but the arm holes were way too big for my liking.

Looking at their online store they have several different kinds of crew neck t-shirts. Anyone know which is the best quality with a slim fit + small arm holes?

those shirts are all way too tight, and paired with loose bottoms, they make you look really unbalanced. First jeans are pretty bad in fit, very baggy, and the 2nd ones make you look like you have huge legs (not sure if you do or if its just a combination of camera angle and the fit of the pants)

fit issues aside, the styling is bad too, I don't think I've ever seen a tie and jeans look good together, always looks like someones trying way too hard, in my opinion. What you appear to be wearing is a black business tie and white dress shirt with jeans, which clashes really bad. if you insist on tie + jeans, try to do it with more casual clothes, like a check shirt and knit tie or something.

I think you're trying to do too much too soon, try spending time looking at blogs, looking at waywt posts (here and in Classic Menswear) to figure out what you like. Get the fit down with basic stuff (plain jeans that fit nice, and button up shirts in plain patterns/colors) then when you get that down, move on to more advanced stuff like working with patterned jackets, doing ties, etc.

Also boot tuck; usually hard to make look good, most people look pretty bad tucking jeans into boots. I would avoid it if I were you until you get a firm grasp on everything else.


edit-forgot about the hair; it looks pretty scraggly in the first picture, if you insist on keeping long hair, google around for hair care blogs, probably mostly womens stuff, to make it look more luxurious. Bad hair is a prett y quick way to ruin a fit.

If you don't mind:
1. Get a manly haircut, people will first check for your face and not your cloths
2. Get two or three decent pair of jeans / pants in dark blue (no washing) and black in a slim fit
3. Get good fitting shirts in white/ blue
4. Get a black belt

Hi, I'm looking for a pair of classic weekend jean boots.

What I like

- Clean medium to dark brown leather boots

- Belstaff townmasters (for the rear zip, non lace, masculine lines)

- or John varvatos spectators (great lines, canvas parts are welcome, however I would like all leather.

Things I don't like:

- square toes

- protruding sole edges

- high heel

- random zips, buttons, studs, engineer straps, monk straps 

- prominent stitching (Docs)

- overly round toe such as the 'precious' Aldens

 

Price range upper limit would be $300 for assured quality

 

Any suitable ideas would be welcomed =)
